The NCCPE are pleased to announce the launch of the 3rd Community University Partnership Initiative (CUPI) match event. Funded by Power to Change and the Arts and Humanities Research Council, CUPI supports community organisations (including community businesses, charities, social enterprises, and voluntary organisations) and university researchers to create trusting and useful research collaborations which benefit all the partners involved.
The Newham match event is taking place on Tuesday 26th June between 10:30am and 4:30pm. Applications for this event are now closed.
CUPI is based on the successful MUPI programme – which found that a regional focus helped ensure people found relevant people to work with. The 4 pilot match events will be taking place in England, in line with Power to Changes remit, however applications are open to those from across the UK who identify with the geographical area of the match event. Following evaluation of the pilot programme, we will seek funding to enable us to develop more comprehensive coverage across the UK.
Find out more (including details on further match events) and register your interest for the Newham, London event for the opportunity to create a new partnership, access funding and explore getting a research idea off the ground.
CUPI is jointly funded by Power to Change, an independent charitable trust that supports and develops community business in England and the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) as part of the AHRC-led Connected Communities Programme and as a part of the follow-up to the Programme’s Creating Living Knowledge Report.
